I was a fan of Little Richard's ever since I saw him in the 'Dont Knock The Rock' movie in the late 50s. The movie itself is boring as are the acts appearing except for LR. I remember the cinema erupting when he came on. He was definitely the 'Innovator' and his style influenced many artists who became Soul legends later e.g. Otis Redding, Joe Tex. The flip side of Tutti Frutti, I'm Just A Lonely Guy is as good as any Deep Soul epic IMO, his last line being going to 'jump in the river and drown'. Also Can't Believe You Wanna Leave and Send Me Some Lovin' (covered by Sam Cooke) are great powerful soul ballads.

I joined the LR fan club in the 60s run from Leicester and the Fanzine was issued monthly or therabouts, I've attached a scan. Obviously I like his Okeh recordings and bought Get Down With It as a new release but for me you just can't beat those wild early recordings.

Totally Agree, I bought this after hearing on Soul Source a few years ago.

Absolutely brilliant tune......................unfortunately a lot of people dismiss LR as just pure R&R....................think he deserves more credit personally!!!

I first saw Little Richard in 'The Girl Can't Help It'. Just like Slim said, when he came on the place caught fire. My mum was wondering if she should get me outa there, but I wouldn't go.

Hey, Jayne Mansfield was in that film!

In a long-distance argument with Jerry Lee Lewis, years later, obviously set up by the programme makers, Richard cited the number of imitators he was plagued with as proof that he was the greatest. "I bet Jerry never rolled into town and the guy says 'You ain't him. I saw him last week and he was charging 50 cents less than you!'" I wonder if he ever found out that James Brown was one of those guys.

All hail Little Richard, one of the few who can seriously claim to have changed the face of music.

Used to like his "Baby don't you want a man like me", a 45 on Stateside and on a compilation LP as well - on the cusp between Rock 'n Roll and an R'n'B dancer...the flip, "Holy Mackerel" is straight up Rock ' Roll but with some great lyrics!
